Saving Kaerishiel

Roll20 Chat Log

Session Summary

The action begins with the Elf Aragon leaping over the top edge of the tower, following two Drow skirmishers who had also leapt over the side. Aragon quickly realized that the Drow had magical levitation helping them to descend, while he had no such power. The agile Elf manages to use the levitating Drow to help slow his descent. He hits the ground hard and manages to pop back to his feet, ready for more. 

Meanwhile, Aethel follows him from the air, covering the two levitating Drow, readying lightning bolts to blast them. Out in front of the tower, Snargash moves to give some healing to the injured Guy. Paal continues to get into position to put his bow to good use while Bodi finishes off the remaining Drow soldier.

After the Drow has been downed, Bodi charges into the tower and up to the roof, expecting to see more action there while everyone else charges around the tower, Guy and Snargash to the left and Paal to the right. 

By the time Bodi makes it to the top of the tower, one of the levitating Drow has been dealt with and the second is on the defensive. Bodi quickly grabs a discarded Drow crossbow and sends a bolt into the hovering dark Elf. Paal makes it around the side of the tower and sends some arrows flying into the Drow as well. 

Feeling that the danger is gone from outside, Aragon and Aethel head into the other tower, looking for the pinned down Elves. Snargash and Guy follow suit shortly after. There are a handful of Elves, including Earwen and Kaerishiel taking refuge in the crumbling tower. Earwen tells the group that Kaerishiel had been incapacitated by Drow poison and then the group was pinned down, unable to move with his body in tow. Their healer, had been killed during the preceding battle. 

Snargash moves in to perform healing on the injured Elves while the rest of the group stands guard. From atop the adjacent tower, Bodi starts calling down that something big is approaching through the nearby forest. His cries continue and become more urgent, It's a fucking Dragon!" he finally yells!

The Green Dragon, Razorhor, rises up over the trees at the edge of the forest and swoops in. It flies around the three towers and lands on a nearby one. Everyone quietly hides, hoping the beast has not spotted them, but it is too late. With a roar, Razorhorn bleches a large cloud of toxic poison into the open door of the tower. Paal, Aragon and two of the Elves are caught in the poisonous cloud. Paal and one of the Elves fall to the ground, unconscious. 
Snargash begins calling out, his voice booming and echoing almost as loudly as the Dragon. The Half-Orc monk begins taunting the Dragon as he races up the stairs to the upper level of the tower. He finally straight up challenges the Dragon to a duel as Aethel moves to engage. He launches a lightning bolt at the beast, but it is is ineffective, except to draw the Dragons attention. Razorhorn launches itself at Aethel, trying to claw the vaporous wizard, but is unable to. It lands on the edge of the tower and faces the Elf. Over on the other tower, Bodi has managed to remain unseen by the Dragon and hoists one of the spear sized missiles onto the siege weapon. The Dragon just so happens to be right in the line of sight for the weapon so Bodi pulls the trigger. 

Introducing Razorhorn the Dragon!
A roar fills the air, hurting everyone's ears as the missile lodges itself in the Dragon's backside. It leaps from its perch and swoops down at Bodi, who takes cover behind the ballista. Fortunately, the Dragon is more interested in retreating than engaging and Bodi escapes unscathed. Razorhorn flaps off, disappearing into the nearby trees.

After a moment of silence, the Crew and the Elves begin scrambling again, tending to their wounded and planning their escape from this dangerous locale.
